In a little more detail...

I have an industrial experience of 4 years in providing solutions for distributed systems using open source/Big Data technologies. I have hands-on experience in Hadoop, Pig, Hive, Flume, Sqoop & NoSQLs like Cassandra & MongoDB. I possess knowledge of cloud technologies and have production experience on Amazon AWS.

My area of expertise includes developing large scale distributed systems for analyzing big sets of data. Currently I am a Big Data developer at IBM working on the data clusters of Sprint using Hortonworks Data Platform. I have also worked on machine learning using scikit-learn. I architected an end-to-end solution to perform clickstream analysis for Tradus. I also played an instrumental role in providing distributed searching capabilities using Solr for GulfNews (one of UAE’s most viewed newspaper websites).

For me, new languages are not a barrier. I am particularly proficient in Java & Python, along with frameworks like Struts & Django. I have always been fascinated by the open source world and constantly give back to the community.

InstantFox Quick Search

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Awesome add-on.
Can you please fix 1 bug that's been bothering me for ages?
Whenever I type something into the address bar, suggestions appear and I click on one of them...the clicked entry is not loaded but a google search of whatever was present in the address bar is made.
TIA.

Clicks on links not working Rated 3 out of 5 stars

Great addon,
Pls fix the bug:
Whenever I try to search for something and the URL bar shows me suggestions, if use arrow keys to select something it works, but If I use the mouse to click on a row, it doesn't load the selected result but loads what was already in the URL bar.

Pushbullet

Rated 3 out of 5 stars

We want the same features as the chrome extension.
If FF does not provide you with APIs to customize notification UI, then please atleast add other features. Most important being able to snooze notifications.
Thanks

Google search link fix

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Great add-on...
One bug though, if we're using keyboard shortcuts to open any link, then it gets redirected through google only.
For example, search for anything > then press tab key > then press enter when the indicator is on the first result.
Pease fix this.

EDIT:
The bug has been fixed by the developer and is working flawlessly. Thanks a lot !!!

basic shortcuts old

Rated 4 out of 5 stars

Really useful addon. I've looking for this since ages.
But please change the behaviour to open new tabs in foreground instead of background, or better yet make it customizable.

InstantFox Quick Search

Awesome addon but... Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Hi,

This is an awesome addon. It's one of the addons that I install first on a new FF. However, I can't remember if that's the behavior from the start or it has started to happen recently.
When just typing something in the URL bar, say pizza, I get the first result from the history and then the rest are suggestions from instantfox. What I need is to load a URL that contained pizza from the history of FF. So, the correct behavior should be- first result from history, then 5 suggestions from instantfox, then the rest of the URLs from FF history as well.

Thanks,
Gaurav Kumar

Google search link fix

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome...just the addon I needed.
Just one thing though...after enabling this, the web history in Google cannot show which links I clicked from the search results. Is there any way to fix that?
Thanks.

Elite Proxy Switcher

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Good addon until you did this.
"Now Firefox will use direct connect at start in case the user forgot to clear the proxy settings."
Please undo this or atleast have a setting to control this behavior.
I am behind a corporate proxy and I don't want this addon to reset the proxy everytime I restart FF.
Many Thanks

Readability

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

I have tried iReader, Stream, Readable & Evernote Clipper and trust me guys, no one does the job better than Readability. Awesome add-on, reading list, multi-page articles etc makes it the best.

Suggestion:
Please have some options to configure the CSS more. Some of us developers like to play around with the width of the page or some other parameters ourselves, so please have some options to change them.

Thanks,
GK

Feedly - Beyond Google Reader

Rated 5 out of 5 stars

Awesome addon...highly recommended...
Google Reader seems to be really in beta after viewer the same feeds in feedly...

Suggestion/Bugs:
* The feedly mini toolbar also appears while viewing images...and it kinds of appears distorted.
* When anything is saved for later, I can't seem to be able to delete that entry from the saved list. Both marked as read and delete are not working. I have to manually go to google reader and remove the star from the entry. Plz fix this.
* In the mini feedly, i have only enabled gmail, twitter and fb, still google's +1 and feedly, save for later are also appearing.

Thanks,
GK

Great add-on.
A minor error though.
